Midnight Pear (section from the painting)

Last night my son called me over to the window. "Regarde les nuages!" he said. I looked at the clouds in the dark sky, after one last flame shot forth from the setting sun... the colors were the same as Pear's backdrop: deep aubergine with flecks of red.... I ran down the hall, into Mom's room, where we marvelled at "Pear in the Sky"--which would have been one more photo for this collection, if we could have pulled ourselves away from the window. Most works of art (there under our noses or above them), go uncaptured. Hopefully they don't go unnoticed.
